OCA-Greater Houston provides free assistance preparing N400 Citizenship applications for individuals with Greencards (Legal Permanent Residents) each month. If you have had your Greencard for 5 years (or 3 years if based on marriage to a US Citizen), you can apply for Citizenship. We suggest you come and start preparing your application 4 to 5 months before your 5 or 3 year date of receiving your LPR Status. THESE FORUMS WILL BE VIRTUAL FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2020!
